Since people seem to be angry about this thread, I just want to point out that I didn't realize the joke was going to be taken the wrong way by a few people. One person pointed out to me why people got offended and now I feel dumb. I was joking about the situation the girl put herself into by dressing like Julia Roberts' character(who was a prostitute) in the Pretty Woman movie while knowing it was cold outside and then complaining about being cold. I would have made the same type of joke if it was 100F out and the same girl wore a skintight vinyl catsuit and complained about being too hot. Gee, and rain is wet!
The description of taking a ride to pick up johns was made in jest. I should have been clearer.
I'm sorry for causing offense like that. It was not my intention.
Why exactly does it matter to you how other people dress? It affects you in no way and it just makes you look like a condescending ass for assuming that they were prostitutes, when, in reality, you just wanted to make yourself feel superior to others. Inferiority complex, maybe?
I have friends who do that all the time. I can't for the life of me understand why they don't put on a goddamn coat or jacket, when they know it's cold outside!!
Me: Uhh... you didn't bring a jacket? You will get cold. Friend: No, I don't need one. It's not that cold. Me: But you will complain in, like, half an hour that you're cold! Friend: No I won't. I'm fine, teehee! Me: If you say so. (10-15 minutes later) Me: You're shivering. Friend: No, I'm n-n-not. Me: Wanna borrow my scarf for a bit? Friend: N-n-no, it's okay, I'm fine... Me: But your lips are turning blue... Friend: I'm not cold, shut up! I'm fine!! Me: ...alright... whatever. (10 minutes later) Friend: ...I'm cold. Me: *sighs*
Wow, because yeah, if you are going to go clubbing or to a party, you should totally go all covered up, like, what was she thinking? That the place may be full of people, in an enclosed area or that she'd be dancing or drinking alcohol? Wow no she must have been such a stupid whore because I am 100% sure that it gets super cold under those circumstances and I am also pretty sure that she may have taken into account the lack of punctuality of the man she was going out with, yeah.
That happens here too. Guys in their wifebeaters and saggy shorts with baseball caps on sideways or backwards. I've seen some of them walk like penguins because they were cold! Those poor fellas could've used a nice furry pimp coat.

I remember I went to a club with some friends some time ago in a winter and I was litterally the only one who was "equipped" for the weather, the other girls where in dresses, tights and high-heels, though there where under 5 degrees Celsius and a thick layer of ice around the club. Oh well, they got cold, not me.
I suppose people dress how they like and they're comfortable showing that much skin. I really never was. I feel self conscious in bathing suits, but that's because of no underwear underneath more than anything!
Yep they are stupid. Majority of the girls in school wore hardly nothing and complained I am cold/wet. I laughed especially when it rained since it doesn't rain that much in socal but it does mainly when its cold outside. Plus our hallways were made stupid where puddles basically were up above your ankles. I wore boots,pants,and a jacket and laughed at them for the stupidity of wearing tube tops,booty shorts,and sandals in our winter rain.
It's like at my HS graduation in 98. It was done on a wet grassy field and I hated spike heels, so I wore chunky ones. All the girls in stilettos were tripping because their heels sank into the muddy ground and they griped about it constantly. (To be fair, maybe they didn't realize the field would be wet at that time. It ended up raining the day of the ceremony and stopped a few hours before it commenced.)
I wore converse and said screw the heals and dress. We had a damn sandstorm and it was cold :/ Everyone was pissed cause this one kid had a speach like over an hour long. I think it was pointless since we had to come get our actual diplomas the next day at the school.
Yeaaaaaah, I think it's silly for a school to plan an outdoor ceremony when the weather is obviously looking bad. It was threatening to rain again on mine, and all they did was put up tents "just in case." They were those white ones on poles you sometimes see at weddings. They wouldn't have done a lick of good if the rain was heavy and made them sag inward!
Logic...it doesn't compute sometimes. Although I think a lot of it is Murphy's Law. The weather will be BEAUTIFUL until you have an event outside, and then it's record breaking (bad weather here) conditions!
You need to define what is cold for people in California. I live in Mobile Alabama and cold for us in general is low 40's and below to the teens. It does not get to the teens very often, but it can get to those temperatures.
I've seen it get down to 35F before, but it's rare and usually in the middle of the night in the wintertime. I rarely feel it unless it's that cold and I'm coming home from Midnight Mass at 1:45am on Christmas. Then it's like climbing into my freezer!
I can get away with a dress in that weather because it's right from church to the car and then into the house. No standing around outside at all(Midnight Mass is supposed to be a little formal, so I dress nicer for it than I do on a regular Sunday morning.)
I have the opposite problem. I feel so much cooler in my jeans and jackets and boots that I have sometimes worn them on days that turned out uncomfortably hot Basically I'll wear them even on mild days where most people are only half-dressed in Winter clothes (like wearing pants but no jacket or something). I also wore a pair of boots once which were fine for the first hour of walking but gave me hell afterwards (could be because I hadn't worn them in yet, they were new and a bit more stiff at the time) But I indeed have suffered in the name of fashion myself Though never froze my ass off
So have I! It's pretty funny how shoes or boots you try on and walk around the store in turn into torture devices as soon as you have to wear them to an event! I swear the damn things shrink between the store and going home. X_X;
So far I haven't worn mine again for such an extended period of walking as that time they raped my feet So I don't know if they stay horrible as long-use boots or if that was just a one time thing because they were practically brand new at the time (people often say shoes and boots take a while before they get comfortable enough for long-term walking) Though I had no idea I would do that much walking that day, if I did I would have worn something else anyway
Man it was bad though, if I had actually seen a shoe shop along my journey I would have just bought a cheap pair of shoes to change into even if I just needed them for the day. And I normally NEVER spend money unnecessarily like that, I just needed to end the torture (oh the blisters I got, one was bleeding!) But they're such good-looking boots I just gotta only wear them when I know I won't be walking for miles on end
I don't know what counts as `cold´ in California, but last year we got about -20°C where I live and about half a meter of snow and we still have girls AND boys (and adults) run around in thin shirts without coats. In fact, about three or four years ago I ran into a young woman/girl argueing with her friends that she had to put on something warmer because of a kidney inflamation. Her interpretion of `some thing warmer´was a really short skirt and a belly free top oO
